Love your life in 3 easy steps
You don’t have to be a Buddhist monk or a self-help guru to live a life you love. You need to start with three very simple steps.
1. Learn to love yourself.
The first step to loving your life is learning to love yourself. This means being kind, accepting, and compassionate towards yourself. It's about giving yourself a break when you make mistakes or feel like a failure. And it means practicing self-love every day so that you can look in the mirror with pride instead of shame or guilt about your appearance, personality or accomplishments (or lack thereof).
The best way I've found to do this is by treating myself like my best friend: if I wouldn't treat them in such a way, why would I do it to myself?
2. Learn to love others.
Learn to love others.
If you're going to love your life, you have to learn how to love other people. That doesn't mean you have to like everyone (you don't have to), but it does mean that you can find some things about them worth liking and respect them for who they are, even if there are many other things about them that annoy or irritate you. If someone cuts in front of me in traffic, I might curse under my breath, but if I really want my life back on track, then I need to take a deep breath and think about all the ways this person might be having an awful day--or maybe even needs someone else's kindness since they seem so stressed out by life.
When we learn how easy it is for us humans (especially those who've been hurt) not only blame others but also hold onto those negative feelings until they become part of our identities ("I'm always late because everyone else takes too long") or behaviors ("I'll never use those people again"), then we can see our own part in creating conflict instead of just throwing up our hands at humanity's imperfections."
3. Love your life!
In order to love your life, it's important to do things that make you happy. Connecting your head and heart is key. Sometimes this means making a list of all the things that bring joy into your life, big or small--and sometimes, it means doing nothing at all but letting yourself be present at the moment. You can also ask for help from friends or family when something feels too big for one person to handle alone (I've been there!).
Love yourself enough. In order to live our lives truly, we must learn how to trust ourselves first by listening closely and taking small actions all day long: 10 seconds at a time! This will allow us space to let go of what we think our lives are supposed to look like and give them permission instead for them to bloom into something even more beautiful than we could have imagined before now...
You can live a life you love by learning to love yourself and others first.
To live a life you love, you must learn to love yourself and others first.
Learn to love yourself by prioritizing your needs and letting others know. When someone asks for something from you, ask them what they need from the situation before agreeing or refusing their request. If it doesn't align with your values or feels bad for either party involved (like an unreasonable request), then say no! It's ok not to be liked by everyone all of the time; it's important for our mental and physical health, not just in relationships but also at work and school too!
Learn how to ask for help when needed without feeling guilty about needing support from friends/family members because there is nothing wrong with asking people close enough in proximity who care about us enough so that they will probably want our best interests at heart rather than just being selfishly motivated by self-interests only."
